Who is Mather?
Mather is a unique not-for-profit organization that is committed to developing and implementing Ways to Age Well.SM Founded more than 80 years ago by Alonzo Mather, a self-described entrepreneur and well-regarded humanitarian, Mather has a long history of serving older adults. Alonzo funded one of the first Continuing Care Retirement Communities (now called Life Plan Communities) in the nation, and his commitment to aging well lives on in our present-day communities.
Built on a bedrock of research and collaboration, Mather fuels innovation and transformation in the aging industry through three areas of service: senior living residences, community-based initiatives, and Mather Institute. Together, these three areas of service form the foundation of Mather and our commitment to making every day Nextraordinary.™
